Best Of 2022

Shock G always brought people together (he’s part of the reason the world has 2Pac, people!), and a year after his passing, the Digital Underground founder did it again at Bastet Brewing where friends, family, fans and collaborators rapped and shared memories during a nighttime concert and party. Sure Money B had to Zoom in due to flight issues, but that means he’ll just have to fly in a day earlier next year for a celebration that could easily be a day-long block party remembering one of the funkiest people in hip-hop history.
